Hi I started taking the mini pill desogestrel in march. Since then I have gradually got anxiety which has fueling into full blown panic attacks and negative intrusive thoughts. I have stopped taking it a week ago and feel abit clearer but I have constant headache and jaw pain plus I'm still anxious. I'm just wondering if anyone eles can relate. Feeling desperate 😕

I didn't personally - I've been taking it for just over a month and have been fine - but my sister had this! It got so bad she wanted to crash her car!! She did feel better shortly after taking it though xx

Thank you jen3121
I'm at my wits end thinking that these side effects are actually just me and not the pill. Hearing your sisters experience helps because honestly iv gone from being pretty tough to scared of everything and worrying none stop in the space of 5 months. Thank you so much for your reply.
